Hampshire v Kent
For the third week running, today's televised fixture is a ' final' game - but this time the emphasis switches to Kent, who during the last few weeks have timed their challenge so effectively that a fortnight ago they were only one point behind the then League leaders and title holders Lancashire. The wearers of the Red Rose completed their League match schedule last Sunday, and will be as interested as all other cricket enthusiasts in seeing which share of the considerable prize money will go to the Men of Kent.
During today's tea interval at approximately 4.0 pm Lord's Taverner John Arlott will read Some Hambledon Characters from The Young Cricketer's Tutor by John Nyren.

A re-enactment of the epic journey undertaken in 1804 by two men, Lewis and Clark, whose names were ever after to be bracketed together. Leading a 45-man expedition from St Louis, Missouri, they set out to explore and open up the North-West Territories of America - at that time the home of buffalo and Indians.
After a year and a half, 29 of the original team together with their Newfoundland dog reached the mouth of the Columbia River and the shores of the Pacific Ocean. It took them another year to get back to ' civilisation ' - and the American North West was never the same again, for the long process of settlement was soon to begin.
